Jub Jub protects HIS WIFE
Rapper's entourage will not let people take photos of the couple
MOLEMO ‘Jub Jub’ Maarohanye has taken it upon himself that he will never allow the media to invade his private space. This vow was taken after he was released from prison early this year. The rapper recently revealed in several interviews that he is a married man, but declined to reveal the identity of his wife. Move! could not confirm whether he got married while he was in prison or not.
MEETING HIS BEAUTY
Move! understands that Jub Jub met his sweetheart, Zenith Mia, whom he claims to be his wife, while he was serving his sentence in prison.
Insiders claim that when the Ndikhokhele hitmaker met Zenith, a umlungu of Italian origin, at a correctional services event at the Johannesburg Prison, which is infamously known as Sun City, he was smitten.
“Molemo met Zenith while he was in prison. She was attending an event that was organised by correctional services and that’s how they clicked. At that time Jub Jub had just performed and after Zenith embraced him, they started chatting,” says a prison warder working at Sun City.
Another insider at Sun City claims that they were shocked when Zenith started visiting the prison often.
“She would come here with lots of goodies for Jub Jub and they would spend time together during visiting hours. Some days she came with Jub Jub’s family,” says our source.
SECRET LOVER TURNED MAKOTI
It is alleged that as their relationship progressed and they got serious, Jub Jub asked his friends and prison authorities to protect the identity of his woman from the prying eye of the media.
“Jub Jub made it clear to his friends and family that he would prefer to keep his relationship with Zenith under wraps as he didn’t want the media to know about it. He learned the hard way to keep his life private,”says a friend close to the rapper.
“He said the media had no business knowing his lover and he felt it was not going to make sense to anyone that he has a woman while he is in prison.”
DANCING THE NIGHT AWAY
Jub Jub recently performed at former SABC boss, Hlaudi Motsoeneng’s home coming party in Qwaqwa, Free State, where Move! spotted him and his woman.
They were later seen at a trendy local pub and shisa nyama called Lapologa in Phuthaditjhaba in the company of Lesedi FM’s radio presenter, Ba2cada, who is also Jub Jub's manager. They were also seen with Jub Jub’s long-time friend, Bones, Morning Live senior producer, Rabosana Maliehe and Hlaudi’s vocal supporter, Ernest Moikangoa.
Zenith and Jub Jub relaxed inside the venue sharing jokes with patrons until the wee hours of the morning. The couple was seen kissing and embracing each other, but Jub Jub’s entourage made it clear that nobody was allowed to take pictures of the couple.
The media was also barred from interviewing Jub Jub or Zenith.
Asked whether Jub Jub and Zenith were indeed an item, Ba2cada says, “I don’t have Jub Jub’s number and even if I had it, he is not going to talk to you, simple as that.”
